Report: Ex-Auburn players say they were paid

<snip>

"Four former Auburn players have told HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel" they received thousands of dollars while being recruited by or playing for the Tigers.

Stanley McClover, Troy Reddick, Chaz Ramsey and Raven Gray told HBO for an episode airing Wednesday night that they received cash payments in book bags, envelopes and even handshakes. Ramsey played at Auburn most recently, in the 2007 season.

Tommy Tuberville, Auburn's coach during the recruitment of all four players, declined comment Wednesday. He is now the head coach at Texas Tech.

McClover said he "felt totally obligated" to play for the Tigers after getting money he wasn't sure how much in a book bag.

"I almost passed out. I literally almost passed out, I couldn't believe it was true," the former defensive end told HBO. "I felt like I owed them."
